Excellent sci-fi anime
5 July 2008 | by petekrug17See all my reviews

The 73rd class of cadets of the Defense University of the planet Kibi is out on a training voyage in the battle ship Amaterasu are heading home when they see on the news the Kingdom of Henrietta has invaded and taken over Kibi. The cadets, led by Cisca Kanzaki, Shinto Kouzuki, Rio Mamiya, Takai Kiryu and Shinto Mikami decide to wage a one-ship war against the kingdom, despite overwhelming odds. For supplies and funding the cadets contact the Galaxy News Network and agree to have a reporter, Dita Mircov, join the crew and provide the show with real life action packed space battles against the Kingdom. The show's producer Peter Spikes cares first and foremost about ratings, and little about the crew's lives. Soon after the first battle Kibi's former prime minister Tatsuma Mamiya, Rio's uncle, joins them as well so the ship and it's crew can be declared a nation in exile. The seemingly hopeless war against the kingdom begins...

The story, animation and characters are all fantastic, just what you'd expect from any worthwhile anime these days. If you like watching anime in English and you've seen INUYASHA, you'll notice a few familiar voices. There's Kelly Sheridan (Sango from INUYASHA) as Sinon, Kirby Morrow (Miroku from INUYASHA) as Takai and Paul Dobson (Myoga and Naraku from INUYASHA) as Peter Spikes.

Also the characters here are serious and intelligent, there are no ditsy, child-like characters in this show. If you're a fan of anime and/or space opera, check this one out.
